I know that nurses are not only the largest healthcare profession but are responsible for the delivery of most healthcare, and are often in the best place to be able to see the whole pathway...
Capitalists work hard to produce what consumers want. Artists who work too hard to produce what consumers want are often accused of selling out. Thus, even the languages of capitalism and art conflict: a firm...
All too often, academic departments defend their territory with the passion of cornered animals, though with far less justification.
Mental violence is as bad as physical violence. You don’t see that very often in movies, so it was a good subject to tackle.

I’m very often still very much alive for that other being and that other world long after the film is finished.
In sports, championships often define a person’s legacy.

There is a lot of absurdity sometimes, not just in Mormonism but often in other religions that want to pretend that no bad happens in their church, rather than taking care of what bad does...
Love never dies of starvation, but often of indigestion.
When you get inside a literary novel you feel that the author, more often than not, just doesn’t know enough about things. They haven’t been around enough – novelists never go anywhere. Once I discovered...
People used to ask me questions on my blog about how to break into the acting industry. You often have to start out in parts where you have very few words, but you still have...
To the teacher weighed down with paperwork, I say: you’ve been messed around too often. You came into teaching to spend your time teaching children not filling in forms.
Modern medicine has presented us with a Faustian bargain: Our aging bodies can bankrupt our children and grandchildren. We have run into the ‘law of diminishing returns’ in health care, where we are often doing...
During my past career as a journalist, I relished writing obits and equally dreaded phoning relatives for the necessary facts. But to my surprise and great relief, they often wanted to talk – they wanted...

I often have trouble falling asleep at night, so when I’m lying in bed I think up stories. That’s where I do a lot of my thinking. I also get a lot of ideas while...
